Before moving into the blueberry smoothie recipes, let’s dive for a minute into what makes blueberries truly special and an excellent choice for your smoothie. Here are 5 facts about blueberries that make them true stars.

Blueberry Fact #1: Blueberries are American Icons

Blueberries are a popular American fruit, their sweet-tart flavor being adored by many. Blueberry muffins, in particular, constitute somewhat of a national classic beloved by locals and visitors alike.

Interestingly, blueberries are actually somewhat more American than the country itself. By the time the USA was founded, blueberries had already existed for 12,750 years on North American soil.

Native Americans called blueberries "star fruits" because of the star-shaped imprint on the berries’ top.

Blueberries even have their own month in the US. July, right at the peak of the country's blueberry season, is national blueberry month.

Blueberry Fact #2: Blueberries are Anti-Aging and Cancer Prevention Foods

Blueberries' distinctive dark blue color is what the berry owes its name to. Responsible for this unique pigment is a compound called anthocyanin. This is worth remembering because  anthocyanins are blueberries' signature antioxidant.

Antioxidants are important because they neutralize free radicals. When free radicals accumulate in your body, this may cause oxidative stress and damage to your DNA, premature cell aging and other cell permutations, including cancer. 

Studies suggest that blueberries are the mother of all antioxidant foods, outranking any other commonly consumed fruit and vegetable by the number of its antioxidants.

In other words, blueberries are a pretty powerful health food you may want to incorporate into your regular diet.

Blueberry Fact #3: Blueberries Keep You Sharp Into Old Age

Aside from featuring insanely high antioxidant levels, blueberries have been found to boast another wonderful health benefit: they may keep your brain sharp and memory decline at bay.

study by Harvard University found that eating even modest amounts of blueberries regularly (2 servings per week) can slow down memory decline in old age by up to 2.5 years.  

Blueberry Fact #4: Blueberries are a Low-Calorie Treat

Low in calories (only 84 per cup of 148 grams), rich in dietary fiber (4 grams), packed with Vitamin C (25% of your daily needs) and consisting almost entirely (85%) of water, blueberries naturally combine a lot of the advantages of a filling, low-calorie weight maintenance food. 

Eating blueberries whole and fresh to satisfy your sweets cravings, instead of having a high-calorie dessert, certainly is a smart way of staying lean and maintaining your weight.

Blueberry Fact #5: Only Rinse Blueberries Right Before Eating

Do you notice the silver-ish, waxy coating on the berries’ skin? Don't let yourself be fooled as this is not dirt. It is called a bloom, a 100% natural barrier that protects the berries’ skin from insects and bacteria while also sealing in moisture. 

In order to keep the bloom intact, only rinse your blueberries right before you eat them. Before that, keep them stored in the fridge which should keep them fresh for up to 10 days.

Now, let’s get our hands blue with our 7 easy blueberry smoothies that will help you pack all of the aforementioned benefits into one nutrient powerhouse of a drink.
